For those students who love to help others and who one day want to work in the healthcare field, HOSA is the perfect organization to join. This club, which stands for Health Occupations Students of America, has been in existence since 1976 and has been at LCM for over 20 years. Its purpose is to help students have a better understanding of the skills needed to become a healthcare professional and assist community needs.

“It is both a local and national health careers student organization,”  LCM HOSA sponsor Cathy Miller said.

Throughout the year, HOSA often has guest speakers come and speak to its members about various topics related to healthcare. The organization also focuses on the community and hosts four blood drives a year, several community walks, and  other community events that help raise money for organizations for medical care.

“This year our main goals are to participate in more community events and to get more skills training,” Miller said.

For those interested in joining HOSA, meetings are held on Thursday mornings in Miller’s classroom in the science department. The club will be having a Pink Out Bake Sale this week and will paint faces on Oct. 3. The first blood drive will be hosted on Monday, Oct. 13.

“We are so thankful to all of the students and teachers that donate,” Miller said.
